Event Description

BACK AGAIN IN 2023! COME RIDE THE BRUTAL LOOP AND SUPPORT THE NORTH GEORGIA MOUNTAIN BIKE ASSOCIATION!
LIKE IT SAYS ON THE LABEL, IT’S A LITTLE BIT BRUTAL!

Come out an support the local trails on a NEW, IMPROVED, but still BRUTAL, Brutal Loop!

Everyone rolls out together: We’ll have a long course and a short course, so you can choose the loop that is the best fit for you! We’ll meet up at 9:00am, and roll out at 9:30am. Everyone will climb up P2, P1, the outer loop of Bear Creek, and will keep climbing all the way to Potato Patch! You’ll find an aid station there (around mile 17) courtesy of the fine folks of the North Georgia Mountain Bike Association. The station will have water, but we ask riders to bring their needed aid station food, nutrition, and supplies in a drop bag that will be awaiting you. But then…

  • Short course folks will bomb down the gravel from there straight back to Mulberry Gap for a course length of around 23 miles

  • Long course folks will hang a left and continue past Lake Conasauga, run down Windy Gap, then climb the pavement and gravel back to Mulberry for a total route of 34.8 miles and 5193 feet of climbing! Cut off for long course folks at the Potato Patch aid station will be 12:30pm. If a rider doesn’t make the cut off they can convert to the short course route.

And once you return it will be time to kick back on our deck, grab a cold beer or soda, eat some lunch (included) and enjoy some relaxation on a beautiful spring day in the mountains. :)

You can check out the route, mileage, and elevation here:
